Westworld Season 4 Episode 4 Recap: Who is C?

Westworld 4x04

In the fourth episode of season 4 of HBO’s science fiction series “Westworld,”  Maeve Millay and Caleb Nichols battle Charlotte Hale and William, also known as the Man in Black, in an effort to stop them from eradicating humanity. The woman with curly hair Bernard Lowe meets and stays in contact with is known as “C” by the other members of her group. Maya is startled when Christina delves deeply into the upsetting turn of events in her life. Here is all the information you need to know about C’s identity, which is revealed in the episode’s breathtaking conclusion.

“Generation Loss” is a Westworld episode that focuses mostly on Caleb and his significance to Dolores-Hale. It is full of action, intrigue, and cunning time leaps. This week, we do see more of Christina (and Teddy! ), but Maeve, Caleb, Bernard, and pretty much every other significant character—aside from Christina—are responsible for moving the plot along. Caleb and Maeve had fallen right into Dolores-trap Hale’s when we last saw them, last week. While Caleb faced a host-copy of his daughter Frankie, William fought and defeated Maeve. He has since fallen into a fly-induced coma.

The action changes from the conflict in the new theme park on Delos to Maeve and Caleb in a different location and with a different objective. The remainder of Serac’s supercomputer Rehoboam is taken with the building’s explosion as they raid a facility on a beach. In the brief gunfight that ensues as they depart, Caleb is shot. Caleb is dragged to a nearby beach, where Maeve tries to stop the bleeding, but he doesn’t seem to be getting better.

A foggy Dolores-Hale, though, gradually comes into focus before we can get any clarity. After the fly attack, Caleb is back with us. Dolores-Hale informs him that she intends to infect and manage every member of his kind using these parasites. Maeve discovers that William is a host while he is around. This time she defeats him by breaking into the park’s computer system and launching a searing sound that renders her adversary helpless. Caleb takes advantage of the commotion and demands information about how to get the flies out of him while holding a piece of shattered glass to Dolores-throat. Hale’s Dolores-Hale won’t reveal it to him. Later, Caleb and Maeve are involved in a firefight amongst the hosts as they attempt to flee the park with Dolores-Hale in tow. As a result of the flies’ influence, Caleb snatches an abandoned gun and points it at Maeve, but a host stabs him before he can fire.

The narrative then returns to Christina. She is awakened by her roommate Maya, who tells her about a bizarre dream she had in which a cloud of flies disrupted her family picnic. She remembers how the flies first possessed her mom, then her father, and eventually herself. We are left with Christina’s most recent artwork, which is the mysterious tower that has appeared intermittently throughout the season, as the two exit her room. There will undoubtedly be more on that front. Ashley, Bernard, and their new “allies” head back to the desert to look for the weapon that Bernard mentioned. The two are divided as a result of the group’s disagreement on whether Bernard and Ashley can be trusted. Bernard directs the group to the alleged location of the weapon.

Teddy greets Christina and Maya as they are out and about, saying what he always said when handing Dolores something. Teddy and Christina converse, exchanging details about their life before Christina inquires as to their familiarity. Caleb, who is still hurt, battles to maintain consciousness. Two things are revealed by flashbacks to the earlier event on the beach: Caleb did not pass away, and Maeve remained by his side for weeks as he recovered. She eventually left after realizing that if she did, he might have a life and something for which to fight. She reveals that she went off the grid in the first episode because she wanted to keep him safe.

The William host Maeve battled earlier and catches up with them that night. In order for Caleb to reach out to his buddies and get them out of the park, Maeve promises to fight him off. The flies decide to take control at this precise time, and soon Caleb can hear nothing but the ringing in his ears and a smug Dolores-feeble Hale’s monologue. She enjoys bringing up how effective her mind control is to others. Caleb resists Dolores-pressure Hale and kills William instead of Maeve as she orders. Dolores-Hale is shocked and furious, and she queries how he was able to defy her. Before Caleb can respond, however, a bleeding William rips a hole through Maeve’s chest while gloating over his latest murderous deed. Multiple bombs are remotely detonated by Maeve, who then seems to kill William and herself.

For a little period, Caleb falls unconscious and has a dream in which his soldiers save him. Dolores-Hale surprises Caleb by revealing that he is a host copy when he awakens (He is Caleb’s 278th version). Bernard converses with the woman that picked him up in the previous episode in the desert. She admits that she doesn’t want to locate the weapon; instead, she wants to locate her father’s body.

Those who predicted this can congratulate themselves because the woman, identified only as “C,” is in fact an adult Frankie. After digging, Bernard discovers Maeve, who had been long since buried in the desert following her battle with William, and the weapon he had promised. The scene shifts to Caleb and Dolores-Hale conversing in a modern structure. He rushes outdoors, catches a glimpse of the skyscraper we’ve been hearing so much about, and notices how everyone in his immediate vicinity has frozen as though on cue. “Welcome to my universe,” Dolores-Hale utters as she wraps up the show.

What is the Tower’s Significance?

Hale launches a new park using William to control people the same way she can control hosts. She wants the species that subjugated her species to be reduced to puppets at her beck and call. In order to command and control the parasite to carry out her directives, Hale develops a specific parasite that can invade human brains and a listening device. The sounding contraption Maeve and Caleb observe at the park has been improved and is now called The Tower. In only 23 years, Hale has been able to spread her parasites throughout the whole population of a metropolis. She builds the Tower so that she can rule over the entire city’s populace. Hale’s success is demonstrated by the Tower’s evolution from a mere sounding device to a massive establishment, despite the fact that she only started it with a small group of individuals in Delos’ park.
